JAKE: So, listen, I’m sorry that I didn’t come see you down at the hospital. You know how those places creep me out, and the firm’s been expanding. I’ve been helping Pop with the restaurant ‘cause he needs to have a legitimate business. He needs a tax return. With all the money that he’s making with his bookmaking, they’re gonna come after him. And then it looks like I’m making, I’m gonna make partner at the firm.
Pat just stares at Jake. The room is silent.
Well, I don’t even know what to say to you anymore. You lost your wife, I’m getting engaged, and I wanna be able to tell you about those kind of things. You lost your house, I’m getting a new house. You lost your job, things are going great for me at the firm.
You know what, I’m just gonna, I’m just gonna, I’m just gonna stop talking. I’m gonna shut my mouth.
